Happy Thanksgiving: Fixing up a feast

Posted: Friday, Nov 23rd, 2012




The scene was all smiles as the volunteers at First United Methodist Church in Huron worked hard to peel and cut over 150 pounds of potatoes.

In the first photo, from left, standing around the table are Tanner Dunnick, Jane Rasmussen, Meckia Fassler, Lanah Mattke, Dana Duvall, Victoria Smith, Joy Petersen, Tara Dunnick and Sheron Chapman. “We expect to serve 464 people this year,” said Joy Petersen. The crew worked hard to prepare much of the food beforehand, including the potatoes, 156 pounds of turkey, 150 pounds of sweet potatoes, and 9 pans of stuffing.

In the next photo, Dianne and Jim Gropper stand near the pie table, filled with pumpkin and apple pies at First United Methodist Church. “All of the pies were donated,” said Dianne. There will be 6 volunteers working in the pie room during the church’s Thanksgiving feast. “They will cut the pies, prepare the carryout boxes, and get them ready for our home delivery meals,” she said.

(Above) Logan Johnson operates the automatic potato peeler that the volunteers at First United Methodist were able to borrow from Holy Trinity Catholic Church in preparation of the Thanksgiving dinner. “It uses water for operation,” he said. “There is water that sprays inside of it,” he explained. “The spraying water acts like sandpaper and it takes off all the peelings. It’s really easy to operate.”
